5 Minute Friday

It's Friday again....time to link up with 5 Minute Friday.  No re-writes, no edits, 5 minutes and love those that came before you.
Topic: Fall


When I see this word many things cross my mind.  Fall is my favorite time of year.  I feel like I can breathe again.  Something lifts inside my spirit.  But the other thing that presses through is that I have fallen.  Face planted.  I was running for dear life with everything I just could not bare to loose and I fell.  And it all shattered.  What do we do when we fall?  For the little ones I care for at school each day, they fall, everything scatters, and they sit there crying, waiting for someone to pick them up, dust them off and care for their wounds.  Bandage them up, tell them it's ok....and then they get right back to it.  Falls hurt but they don't have to be the thing you don't get back up from.  That's what our family and friends are for....our community.  Even when He rewrites everything after our fall....



  1. Yes, community is such a relief when we fall on our faces! My take on Fall was very similar to yours. Great minds think alike!

  2. oh yes, face planted ... we've all been there, repeatedly. and there is hope ...


    1. THankful for hope...and bandaids :)

  3. My son literally fell on his face this week. It was a reminder that we have to keep getting back up, and a reminder of the power of community.

  4. I know that 'face plant' feeling oh to well but I am so thankful for the community that He has built up around me to help me up and put me on the path again.

  5. Beautiful take on this prompt, friend. I thought about going with the verb "fall" because I'm a total klutz. ;) What a blessing it is to be surrounded by those who lift us up and build us up again when we've fallen. Have a wonderful weekend! :)

  6. Stopping by from Five Minute Friday.

    Ahh, so very true. Good post.

  7. I love fall too! Beautifully written post :)
